  1. Yep, it would've provided a larger "big game" reputation for him for sure (though his '68 performance in and of itself was legendary). It would have been awesome to see what he could've done in multiple World Series. Also, it's a shame overall the Tigers couldn't have been more successful than they were during the later part of his career. Thier offensive decline ended up hurting him badly - I think it was in '74 or '75 that in a 14 start stretch, the lineup only provided him with 14 total runs. It was a wonder he could still get 15+ wins at the time with an offense like that.
  2. That one's a little different, it's basically the Cooperstown model (wool with grey underbrim) without the NE flag. The on-field will be polyester with a black underbrim. Mickey's is awesome though, tons of great throwback hats from every era!
  3. As soon as that cap is available for purchase, it's mine.
  4. Count me in as another 90's kid going with the 60's. - Teams began experimenting with different color schemes, and RWB dominance began to be broken up. - More expansion, relocation, and new/merged leagues added to the variety of identities, logo styles, and team colors. - Despite all of this change, traditional and timeless elements of uniform design remained intact, with most teams still donning classy looks (even if wearing an untraditional color scheme) before the advent of trendier and less timeless ideas. All of these things brewed up a perfect storm. The 60's were a beautiful decade when it came to identities and aesthetics all across sports.
  5. BYU will wear a memorial patch for LaVell Edwards throughout the coming season: I would assume they have a navy patch for the other jerseys, but also wouldn't put it past them to have the same royal patch across the board as well.
  6. I really liked "It Don't Matter to the Sun" because it didn't sound like as big a departure from his regular style, and "Maybe" because it was a pleasant surprise of a good 90's ballad. The rest of the album was pretty blah to me, though. I don't mind the idea of concept albums wading into new territory, but if you're gonna do it, you've really got to nail it from start to finish. As much as I like Garth, I just don't think he did that with Chris Gaines.
  7. We have a winner. I'm not familiar quite yet with what to expect as far as alternates are concerned with Nike, but could Phoenix wear '68 throwbacks? That'd be sweet.
  8. Yep, it sure looked really good back in the day:
  9. Coming from a fan of the 90's Dolphin, this one is the winner for all time. If it got in a Tekken fight with the Cruiseliner Bellyflopper, it'd win in one punch.
  10. Different strokes for sure, and nothing wrong with that! I'm just of the opinion that the Tigers have the best set in baseball as is. The road has just the perfect amount of orange and the "Detroit" script is a thing of beauty. The idea behind the pullovers was fine, but I strongly dislike pullovers and thus don't feel the concept was as well executed. I could get behind it though if it were a button down and the stripes were thinned to navy-white-orange piping though, and the white outline taken off the orange "D" on the cap.
  11. Eh, I still like the (devil) sting ray a whole lot better. It's always been a better logo to me and provided for a better identity altogether. Besides that, the sun ray logo itself has always looked really unbalanced and awkward on it's own. It looks okay when placed on the wordmark, but frankly looks terrible on a cap. It's not very versatile. I think the Rays jumped the gun way too much with the initial rebrand. People had (stupid) trouble with "Devil"? Fine, just keep the stingray , drop "Devil" and officially call them the "Rays", and let it refer to any other kind of sea ray. They didn't have to pull "ooh now it's a sun ray!" out of a hat. It just seemed desperate, almost like Michael Scott freaking out in the infamous Office fire drill scene, but the branding version. They also didn't have to go double blue either, but that's a different story.
  12. I'm just not feeling any of this ASG stuff. The game caps just strike me as corny. Why would I buy one when the teams' regular caps look better? Let's go back to regulars with a patch and call it a day.
  13. Dang, I wish the throwback stuff had a little more to it. Cruiseliner/Insurance Agency Dolphin needs to go, and fast.
